Cranberry mustard, Dijon mustard, lemon mustard, thyme mustard, you got it, I'll try it.
But this weekend I did something I never did before. I cut my own mustard, for the very first time.
How to cut your very own mustard, 101
Imagine my surprise, while flipping channels, to come across people making mustard. Who knew! I thought it grew in jars, just like, you know, other stuff at the grocery store.
But, no, there they were, mixing stuff.
I was so intrigued, I knew I had to try it. And I figured you should try, too. So here's the recipe, so we can cut the mustard together (I heartily apologize for the juvenile sense of humor; it's been a long, long day*).
I got the recipe at Cultivating Life. I have never seen the show before, and doubt I'll ever find it again, but at least I can visit the Website as fancy takes me.

*A long day, yes, but when need be (and sophmoric jokes aside), I do not shy away from delicate subjects when they, ahem, arise.
